    Laptop Moving So Slow It Makes a Glacier Appear Fast


    Friend has a Toshiba Satellite that was upgraded from 7 to 10 a few years. He tells me that everything had been great until we switched from Daylight Savings to Eastern Standard Time. ??? I Know - Didn't make sense to me either. Says he had to pull the plug and remove the battery to to get it to shut off and that turning it back on only gave him a black screen.

    But now that he's at least got it back to the point where it boots and he can log in he gives it to me to see what I can do about the speed.

    I've disabled all the Toshiba bloatware, set it to boot into safe mode with networking, run chkdsk /r twice and sfc scannow. I can't find that there's anything wrong with it. I downloaded AdwCleaner onto a thumb drive (it was still downloading on the problem laptop after 2 hours), but it didn't find anything of substance.

    I used a disk and went into Troubleshooting and tried a Reset (with keeping all his personal files). After 2 hours it was still at 0%, so I ended the task. When I went into Restore with the disk, he had only 2 restore points, the newest one being Oct 20th. It's been showing me that it is restoring the computer now for 4.5 hours, and I'm going to bed - it's 2:45AM here..

    :)

    FAST - Laptop to PC

    Can FAST (File and Settings Transfer Wizard) be used to migrate files from a Laptop to a PC? I have this friend who needs his E-mail, Client database, etc. moved from his Laptop to a PC. Can someone tell me how easy this is to do with FAST and what the steps I should take to perform this procedure? Thanks.

    If FAST can't be used can someone recommend a free Transfer Wizard? I guess I could manually do it, but I don't want to mess up and have him blaming me for god know how long.

    Laptop Moving So Slow It Makes a Glacier Appear Fast

    Does fast gpu make up for a slow cpu.. ??

    i dont dispute the fact that slow a cpu will hamper a gpu.. that goes without saying..

    what i am more interesting in find out for myself is just how much a fast gpu makes up for the slow cpu..

    so far i am down to 2 gig.. pretty slow i think.. it certainly does hamper my pair of 980 TI cards no question of that..

    but Just Cause 3 was still perfectly playable with the cpu at 2 gig.. 1440 frame rates mostly around 80 with highs around 100 and lows around 50..

    which does kind of suggest that if you chuck enough gpu power at any game even a half assed cpu will do a good enough job..

    it also kind of suggests (and not everybody knows this) that anybody with an older generation I5 or I 7 cpu aint gonna suffer that much because of this.. without a doubt the gpu is king.. *Smile Laptop Moving So Slow It Makes a Glacier Appear Fast :)
